                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome OSKSI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with PEREGRINE FALCON? 
He actually beat GAMES LIBRARY's SHARAN KHOR, and walked away with 17 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at OSKSI while they watched DANGEROUS CRIMINAL 
clobber TARHELLA VHU.  She lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as she might, HEARTS wasn't good enough at persuading FLAGPOLE 
PANTIES to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES!  
In my day, no team with a 71-44-4 would scare me off!  What's the problem, FRAT PARTY 
BLOWOUT?   
     Warriors of OSKSI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm
